Things to do for August 29, 2013
Free Cupcakes, Free Beer and a Dance Party
The weekend is dressed in white and looks damn good.
Here. Have This Free Bacon Cupcake.
To prepare for this long weekend, you should have a healthy meal. Barring that, have this: Sprinkles’s first-ever savory cupcake, which is vanilla cake studded with crisp bacon and topped with maple cream cheese frosting. Meets the USDA’s recommended daily allowance of bacon cupcakes.
Furniture Shopping, Now with Free Beer
Guy-centric furniture website TRNK NY is showing off its stuff at Independence today, and Solemn Oath Brewery is pouring you gratis beers. Because sometimes you just want to hang out with your buddies, hoist a few beers and talk about Eames chairs.
Some Nice New Digs for Connie’s
Pizza stalwart Connie’s is opening in the Gold Coast. We’re talking a prime location in Newberry Plaza with full atrium views. But we’re also talking an easy place to pop in for wood-fired pizza and a cold beer. We never get tired of talking about that.
Donuts + a Hipster Block Party
You’re going to have a busy day at Longman & Eagle on Sunday. Get there in the morning for a donut pop-up shop at the adjacent Off Site Bar (flavors are still TBD). Then come back in the afternoon for a Labor Day dance party to sweat off all those donuts you ate.
Sort of the Ultimate Tailgate Party
You had some good times this summer. You also had some good ribs. So basically this barbecue competition in the parking lot of Soldier Field, where you’ll sample and then vote on the offerings of 30 pitmasters, is kind of like a summer refresher course.
